Wharves 6, 6.5 and 7 Upgrade

Wharves 6, 6.5 and 7 Upgrade - Oakland Army Base

Biggs Cardosa was selected to provide structural engineering services for Wharves 6, 6.5 and 7 as part of the Oakland Army Base Redevelopment project. The wharves were originally constructed in the 1940’s, damaged during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, and a repair program was undertaken in the 1990’s. Under the current redevelopment project, a study was performed to determine the level of strengthening necessary to bring the wharves back to their original load carrying capacity while meeting current seismic requirements. In addition, the wharves were strengthened to accommodate new commercially viable cranes that will be used to load bulk materials onto ships.
